Gale Anne is located in Atlantic Beach and offers to show you a memorable time in these waters. The crew provides a safe fishing experience, whether it be a first-time family group enjoying themselves or an avid fisherman going after more enjoyment in the ocean.

Capt. Scot will do his best to make sure you have a fun day full of fishing. This involves 3 to 8-hour trips, mainly fishing for Spanish Mackerel, King Mackerel, Dolphin, Bluefish, Seabass, and Amberjack, depending on the season and conditions on the day. On these trips, you can expect to use techniques such as light tackle, heavy tackle, bottom fishing, trolling, big game fishing, handline, jigging, and spinning.

Your fishing adventure starts on the Gale Anne, the pride of the sport fishing fleet here on the Southern Outer Banks. She was constructed and custom built in Harkers Island North Carolina in 1964 and has been putting smiles on people’s faces ever since. She is birthed at the captain Stacy fishing center with all the amenities available to go with any perfect fishing trip. This boat is a 45’ Myron Harris that can safely take up to 6 anglers. She comes with a toilet, an ice-box, and 4 fighting chairs.

All rods, reels, and terminal tackle are included in the price so you can focus on what really matters, fishing. Your trip will include all the necessary fishing licenses for the day. The crew will clean and fillet your catch for you to take home at the end of the trip.

Book your trip now and hit the water with Gale Anne.
